  • Since we're only 1 away from the bottom of the list, I hardly see how it could get worse. Being a teetotaling Mormon myself, I've gotten along just fine w/o alcohol for many years now. I figure I've saved thousands not drinking, (of course only to blow it on other things). Not to mention I avoid embarrasing myself in public. :-)

    On a related note, I wonder if the police should be working harder at getting people to wear their seatbelts or keeping people from driving drunk?

    • It seems you took me to be speaking negatively of either the Governor-elect or of teetotaling Mormons. I was doing neither. I just found it interesting that we had a "D" grade for Governor, and now we have a teetotaler as Governor. I myself am a teetotaler, though not a Mormon.

      And they should work a lot harder on stopping drunk driving. Difference between potentially harming yourself (no seatbelt) or others (drunk driving).
      • No offense taken. I guess I should have made if more clear that my comments were tongue-in-cheek. However, I did have to lookup what "teetotaling" meant. :-) Religion aside, I have great hopes that our new governor can work to let me hold onto a little more of my paycheck. Only time will tell. Isn't it amazing that the people nearly voted down the state income tax? (Not that the legislature would have upheld it...)

        And I agree 100% that drunk driving, excessive speeding, etc should be the focus of the cops policing our roads. The timing of the drunk driving results is rather interesting considering last night's ER episode where a drunk driver kills a mother, child, and possibly a second child (pending a heart/lung transplant!) when he hits them while the family was building a snowman after a snowstorm.
